Minigore Monster Contest! Big Prizes!

We held a tagline contest last year where the winner ended up as a playable character in Minigore. Evan Hsu was the lucky one with his catchy tagline "Tiny creatures, Giant adventure!"


It's that time of the year again so let me introduce the next Minigore themed contest:


Zombie Evolution


Click the poster for a hires version!


We would like you to design a monster that fits into the minigore universe. You can use whatever means necessary to make your fantastic creature. This includes digital painting tools like Photoshop or Gimp, traditional art tools, clay, super sculpey, matchsticks & glue, baking cakes, snow, ice sculpting, 3d software, Zbrush, pixel art, papercrafting, blood... maybe not the last one, but you get the point :)

If you plan to draw your monster with pen & paper just scan it or use your camera to take the picture. You must however add a text "minigore monster!" to one of the corners with the same type of pencil, pen or crayons you used to ensure us that the picture is indeed made by you.

Send the pictures to sheepcontests@gmail.com with a description of your monster, its name and its abilities. Also, add in your full name, your address and e-mail (if it's not the same you used to send the pictures). We need your contact information in case you win some of the prizes in the competition. Mountain Sheep will NOT use your contact information in any other way than to inform the winners.

We will pick 10 best monster designs and then we will create a poll out of them for everyone to vote your favourite. We will consider the following judging criteria when picking the 10 finalists for the poll:

1) Creativity
2) Technical skill
3) Effort (you get extra points for making the monster using extraordinary methods)


The deadline for submitting entries is 31st of December 2010 (12.00 (UTC +2 timezone). After we shortlist 10 entries the public voting will be held and the winner will be the design which gets the most votes!


We've got some awesome prizes for the winners:

1st prize : Wacom Intuos 4 M A5 Wide
Top of the line drawing tablet from Wacom. It's same model I used to create all Minigore art.

Wacom Intuos 4


2nd prize : iPod touch 8GB (4th generation)
It's the latest iPod touch featuring retina display.

iPod touch 4th Gen

3nd prize : Minigore poster and a mug
Cool Minigore themed merchandise.


Everyone at Mountain Sheep is super excited about the competition and I personally can't wait to see what kind of crazy designs you guys & gals come up with!


UPDATE: I did a couple examples to answer few questions and to get you even more inspired to throw together some crazy designs!

Wacom Intuos 4

Let your imagination fly! The monsters can be as tiny as an ant or as big as a mountain, it could be designed as playable character or it could be a boss, or just a regular monster. If you want to go the whole nine yards it can be put into elaborate setting with a moody background and other characters.

  1. This is exciting! I'm going to have to start brainstorming...I'm in need of a new Wacom :D

  2. Awesome ;]
    Too bad my drawing skills are horrible.. =|

    ReplyDelete
  3. when you guys make your drawings, models, etc. could you post a pic on facebook? i wanna see em

    ReplyDelete
  4. woah on the left side i see elder gore, is he an enemy character or boss?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Contest looks great. Definitely entering :). Are we allowed more than one entry?

    ReplyDelete
  6. i mean on the pic

    ReplyDelete
  7. You're not limited to 1 entry, you're allowed to submit as many entries as you want :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Are we designing enemies or playable characters?

    ReplyDelete
  9. YO! Timo! how can i get my design to you? I think it's pretty awesome! Of course I'm sure someone else will probably beat me but I think I could get a chance at 3rd, maybe 2nd...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Anonymous: It can be enemies or playable characters, as long as it's an evil creation :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Are all three winners' creations gonna be in the game eventually?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Timo, what if drawing isn't our specialty? I've got three really cool ideas, but I can't draw!

    ReplyDelete
  13. little question. Do participants have to be in the same country? I live in Colombia, South America and I NEED that ipod! PLASE ANSWER!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. WHOA well here's the contest! Right after I finished asking about the contest on the last posted blog thingy. Dunno why I care. I'm not entering with no drawing talent. Intrigued I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  15. hey can we make a melee or special weapon character or does it have to shoot a machine gun?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Shoot, I might have to take a stab at this. Time to take out the 'ole pad and pencil.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Qpeurtl427: The official prizes are what it says above in the blog post. It is a possibility that we might add some more prices in addition of the current prizes or even put one of the winning creations into the game.

    Metalbear: Tagline competition was a writing competition and visual entries were not accepted into that one. This one is a visual competition so only visual entries will be accepted. It would be kinda hard to judge mixed discipline competition. You could team up with someone who knows how to draw.

    Pampe: As long as you live on Earth you can enter the competition.

    Citizens of Moon and Mars have to wait for another contest because it's kinda expensive to mail 1kg package to Mars :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. Qpeurtl427: The creature can have any weapon you can think of

    ReplyDelete
  19. Whoa, that Wacom thingy looks amazing! I may have to give this thing a shot! (even though I have no artistic expereince whatsoever =P)

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Timo
    What size is the wacom board? (small, medium, large, wireless)
    Thanks!!
    Keep up with the good work!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anon above, just look at the size of the pen, it looks regular size so by that you can tell how big the board is

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow great job on eldergore, they look great!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Question: if some one got first place, but wanted the itouch instead of the wacom, do they have a choice?

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Timo: Can we have a video of Dark Knight killing zombies?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Anonymous: It's Medium size: http://www.wacom.com/intuos/medium.php

    Anonymous: The first place winner can choose his/her prize if they want. There's quite a bit of difference in monetary value of the Wacom & iPod touch so if I was in that situation I would definitely choose the Wacom.

  26. @timo
    After i scanned mine , how can i send it to u ?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Anonymous, the email address where you should send the picture is mentioned in the blog post:

    "Send the pictures to sheepcontests@gmail.com with a description of your monster, its name and its abilities. Also, add in your full name, your address and e-mail (if it's not the same you used to send the pictures). We need your contact information in case you win some of the prizes in the competition."

    ReplyDelete
  28. Do the creations need to be in the same style as minigore? The kind of box like lego style?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aww man this is going to be awesome! I've got some decent ideas, and lucky me, I've got some artistic-type friends!

    Hey Timo, I feel kinda bad asking this, since you're answering questions like a beast, but what would we do if I wanted to do a texture? Not entirely a character, but a pattern that could be used on clothing, a background, or something else? Thanks and keep up the awesome work! =)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Im goin to draw my ideas myself so that at least i took effort ibto doing this

    -jan

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Timo If we have more than one entry is it possible that more than one of your entries could make it into the shortlist?

    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have no artistic talent so I'll just wait to see who the top ten are. BTW after I get sensei Evan I rly don't no what else I could do. Please make more unlockables and things that will keep me busy. Good luck for people trying contest.

    ReplyDelete
  33. OMG!!! THE TIME HAS COME TO FINALLY SHOW MY STUFF TO THE MINIGORE TEAM!!!! :D i knew my minigore fan-art would be useful!!!

    -Leandro

    ReplyDelete
  34. Anonymous: They don't have to be super blocky or boxy, just something that fits into the Minigore universe.

    Matthew: As long as the texture ends up on a full character it's fine. The 5 regular zombies are actually the same 3d model, just the texture changes. For example you could do a papercraft by replacing textures in a template like Gupu's John Gore papercraft and easily turn into a monster:
    http://minigore.blogspot.com/2009/08/unsual-fan-art.html

    Kalriq: It's possible to get more than one entries into the finals, but you cannot win more than one prize. (your better ranked entry wins in that scenario, it wouldn't be very fair if one person won all prizes)

    Matt: It doesn't have to be the most technically dazzling piece, after all the 1st judging criteria is creativity! :)

    Jan & Leandro: Looking forward to seeing your entries!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Awwwwww Yeah!!!! will do mr.Timo sir :D im gonna try my best!!! GOOOOO MINIGORE!!!

    -Leandro

    ReplyDelete
  36. Timo,
    Is it allowed in the contest to draw something that's based off a drawing of yours? For instance could I draw the guy on a sheep on your Mountain Sheep we're not your ordinary sheep drawing on the blog, because he would be a great charector.

    ReplyDelete
  37. @timo

    I live in the UK would that affect ne from winning some prizes?

    -jan

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOVING IT!!!! If anyone even dares to think of my idea i will actually die :L Big Up MINIGORE!!!!!!! BTW I live in France atm does that make any difference?? i have an adress in england that an send me mail if that is needed?? Again MINIGORE FTW

    Etienne

    ReplyDelete
  39. So, Timo, does this have to be in 3D?

    ReplyDelete
  40. May I include a back drop and every thing or simply just the sketch of the moster of evil?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Are we allowed to enter multiple art pieces for the same monster, not giving much away - but for example a 'staged' monster we could use several A4 sheets to depict it's forms?
    -K-

    ReplyDelete
  42. Right, can it be a boss, and something that would have a little cutscene when you kill it? (I have an idea but it would only really work well if a cutscene was allowed)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sorry for the double post, but could it also be an interpretation of Dr Metsumalem?

    ReplyDelete
  44. a couple of things so lets say a make a good basic idea and you get the picture, but my drawing is Not top notch would you while looking at the entries look about how you would improve them a little just like color, small touch ups things like that?

    2) thank you for updating the release notices below that was helpful.

    3) what about a character? could a monster easily become a playable character? like you can fight them, and you can be one of them.

    4) whats the status of episode 4? what are you guys working on now?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Joseph and Me: If you base it on existing Minigore character you could make it like an evil cousin of Dr. Metusalem or the Sheep Rider. That way you can retain the basic concept while making it somewhat original.

    Anonymous and Etienne: We're able to ship the prizes to UK and France.

    RecNinja: The contest isn't limited to just 3d images.

    Anonymous: You're allowed to do backgrounds for the characters and adding a moody environment can actually make the presentation even cooler! For example zombie warthog creature on a steamy swamp probably looks better compared to a single color background.

    Kalriq: You can post more than one shot of the monster.

    Joseph: The monster can be a regular enemy, playable creature or boss unit.

    I gotta work for a bit, I'll answer the rest later :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Another question, is there a limit to the size or the creature?

    ReplyDelete
  47. AND if we draw some concept art ourselves, would you want to see that, for extra "effort" points?

    ReplyDelete
  48. does it have to be in color

    ReplyDelete
  49. Darn! I thought this was only going to be a monster contest so now I absolutely cannot decide whether I want my character to be playable or not :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. @Joseph its obvious the creature can be any size. look timo will tell ya

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm also super curious about what other people are drawing. I myself have drawn two monsters on MS Paint, and my little brother has also drawn one. We have sent these three in.

    I was wondering if anyone would want to send me a picture of their monster, because I want to see what other ideas people have in the community. I'm super curious what they would look like.

    I would not copy or use your image to make another.

    Thanks,

    Shane - sportshane@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  62. Timo, can we make a costume of a monster and film it (with make up, fabric, etc.)? I would be able to record what the monster's abilities are.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Now presenting the official Minigore forum beta: www.mountainsheep.net/forums

    We'd also like you to post your monster pics to the contests forum on the site!

  64. Hey Jussi what if we sent it to the email adress provided? :)

    -Leandro

    P.S. i can't wait to hear what you guys think about my stuff! :D

  65. i really hope i win, but of course everyone else does too lol. I'll put mine on as soon as i finish. for a sneak peak :clay:

  66. Just a question: is anyone doing a 3d scult in 3G softwware I was gonna but the contest ends In a month and it takes a while..

    Tiago

    ReplyDelete
  67. Am i allowed ro make a grim reaper that comes and takes you when you die?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Just HOW evil does this character need to be? =p Also that degree of evil could be perspective...

    Also, can you post a PowerPoint with the images and/or have multiple attachments for your multiple entries and label each, while if your made a character pack group them together after single images so you can show what that character pack is while still having each one as an individual entry?

    Also how does digital art play in vs normal drawing/sculpting then possibly editing a scan of that for points. It would also seem you need it to not only be an idea but look good for when it comes time to vote.

    Lastly, do we need to provide accurate back/beast mode views of our characters?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Leandro: You are supposed your entry pic/pics to the email provided. The forum is just for checking out what others are submitting and discussing about entries.

    anonymous: The deadline for posting the pic is december 31, 2010. So I think you have 48 days to work on your piece. The voting will happen after we are no more taking more entries.

    anonymous 2nd: You are supposed to make a monster, I think a grim reaper kind of fits the image, don't you think? :)

    anonymous 3rd: just send every monster with a separate email that each still clearly point out they are sent by the same person. It's nice if you have some background information about the monster you make but it's not essential. To answer your second question is a bit hard, because it depends. We would like to have a fair share of different methods used to create the monster in this competition so it we might weight some "odd" ways a bit before the vote.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Oh ok thanks Jussi i already sent it to you guys just wanted to get that clarified :)

    -Leandro

    ReplyDelete
  71. How will the votinf work? Are we gonna get a picture of the monster or just a name or descripton?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Any opinions?

    Also, I am wondering if Mountain Sheep thinks any of my characters has a chance to go to the final 10.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hey jussi what software do you use to create your designs

    ReplyDelete
  74. Aww... the minigore community is so cute and friendly with this contest going on. Maybe I'll even draw some terrible artwork and send it in... Or my horribly critical and judgmental self will criticize and destroy it before I get the chance. Yeah... Never mind.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @shanecm

    it's pretty good but you'll lose creaativity points from blockies since you got it from that nitrome game, square munch or something...

  76. Hey i've already sent my pics to you guys and was wondering if you guys can put it on Forums for people to see :D

    At what point did I try to sound smart, and at what point did I make a cool statement. If you're referring to my last statement I made, there was nothing smart in there, and if you really think anything was smart or cool in my last statement, it just shows how stupid you really are. Stop attempting to egg me on, there's not a ton of ppl on this blog page, but there's still too many for you to be making yourself look this stupid on.

  83. Wooooot! I drew a monster and it isn't half bad! And jc ignore the anon or settle the argument over Skype or something cos fitting on the Internet is just really weak. You to anon play nicely and don't comment anything negative back ccos it will not in any way afect me. So peace!

  86. @jcyoutube18
    An example where you were TRYING to sound smart were like "(erasing two words I was gonna use and replacing them instead with...)". Maybe I am wrong, maybe you were not trying to be smart but failing at being funny.
    Pretty lame excuse for upsetting the blog; that I am egging you on. Take responsibility please and grow up.
    I am yet to see how I am stupid. Please quote from my "Wow your soooo cool. To bad trying to sound smart doesnt win arguments." post and prove me wrong.
    I like the way you say that I am looking stupid. Obviously people seem to think that you are looking stupid as I quote: "Something that EVERYBODY could play, not just for example iPhone4 users. (thus preventing the whole jcyoutube18 debate)".
    Just something to think about.

    ReplyDelete
  87. EXTRA EXTRA JCYOUTUBE18 AT HIS BEST:
    "Such excuses... I updated my App, I noticed nothing new. So despite ur claim that the update DID affect everyone, I see no evidence... Basically, my point being, SOMETHING, SOME. THING. Coulda been released. I KNOW this. I know there is a way to break it down and release it piece by piece. I KNO. Or if not for some magical reason, you coulda been released SOMETHING. The retina coulda came AFTER or WITH Episode 4. U don't keep ppl waiting for like a year practically and then when u FINALLY drop something it's not even for everybody. AND now ur next update may not even be episode 4, but a fix for the screen slip bug??"

    "Ok idiot, you clearly misinterpreted what I said and added on whatever you felt like as well. Ur clearly pretty stupid and just bcuz I can't make an app doesn't mean I lose all rights to judge and criticize it."

    "how about shutting up urself"

    ReplyDelete
  88. Cmon guys just chill, why do you all have to be haters to each other?

    ReplyDelete
  89. I just think, there was fighting since the blog came to life, and it never helped a lot...

    But the main thing is, that in the last few weeks I noticed more passion within MS team, but now, there isn't even the update with the white guy, and Episode 4 now took already a 3/4 year...
    When MS can't (or don't like to) get more team members for working faster on episodes, there won't be more fans, and we all know, that the game is just not funny anymore, it's always the same, and they can add characters en mass, when there's no new traits! (despite the fact that white gangstA has one)

    Just give us new stuff, and we're lucky



    ...

    I think this is the thousandth post about this theme, and nobody just even notices it...(Bad english is because I'm german :P)

  90. Hey Timo/Jussi,
    Just like to say that this contest looks so amazing! I'm definitely entering my fan art into it soon! And hey, even if I don't win i'll still be able to look at all the fabulous ideas and drawings people have come up with! And the PRIZES!! A Wacom, a 4g iTouch and cool minigore-related stuff?!?! WOW! You guys are awesome!!!!!
    Just one problem, by the looks of things there are people of all ages entering these contests. I don't think it's really fair if a nine year old went up against a nineteen year old, so is there any chance you could have age categories? I'm not saying you should buy more prizes for it but i still think there should be a first/second/third place for them.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Can we please stop the rather pointless arguing? This is not what I come to the blog for. Both sides have their respective hits and misses at each other, now kindly stop.

    ReplyDelete
  92. hey i've just sent 10 more monsters and power up and map drawings and im still looking froward t seeing everyones stuff :D

    -Leandro

    ReplyDelete
  93. I think that Skidatle has a valid point.

    I think it would be better to have age categories, (like choose 3 or 5 from each (depending on how much categories there are) to go into the final 10 for the fan vote. I don't think that you could do categories for the final results considering you already have the prizes. You could atleast do it for the qualification to get into the final 10.

    You have no life going through old quotes of mine just to post them up. Let's not forget that I left a post about the drawing contest and you called me immature. For no reason. So stop acting like your innocent, you're upsetting quite a few ppl here including the beta testers so maybe you oughtta stop. You sound like a baby. Again, I didn't attempt to sound smart, nor funny, the fact that you can't differentiate a joke from an intellectual statement says volumes about you, especially when I wasn't attempting either. I made no lame excuse by saying you're egging me on, it's a fact proven by your two long post where you went through all my old comments like a true loser. I didn't upset the blog, based on the comments above this one, you are. Get a job or go to school or something to keep you busy. Copying and pasting comments of mine from like over a month ago... I told you, too many ppl on this blog to make yourself look retarded on.

    ReplyDelete
  97. ANONYMOUS: please don't quote me if you are using it as a weapon in an argument that has been blown way out of proportion. I wish to be left neutral in this debate. Thank you.

    Also, not to take sides, but jcyoutube18 very kindly asked you to be quiet, and has denied attempting to sound smart. Again, I'm not trying to take sides, I'm merely stating the facts. No hate intended towards everybody. Let's all just get along here. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Well hopefully now with a beta tester having jumped into the middle of this and speaking some common sense, things can end because indeed, this was unnecessarily blown way out of proportion. This was ridiculous...

    ...Um... No... I dunno... If I do, don't anticipate what I come up with, it'll only be terrible. I actually like drawing a lot, but it never looks anything like what I see in my head and I just end up hating it. Maybe someday (soon since the contest will be over in not too long) I'll actually do it. Just for fun.

  109. OMG I can't believe minigore is free for 48 hrs. There are so many people that are saying this app sucks in the reviews and how u don't hav multiplayer mode. All the newcomers have no respect for the work put into this app by u guys and the app doesn't seem as special since u made it free for two days. I hope u get more money out of this otherwise it was a complete waste.

  110. I looked at the reviews, and TONS of them are VERY positive contrary to what Matt above me says. I only looked for so long because I got bored eventually but I didn't notice any multiplayer complaints though I'm sure they are there. I thought the 3 and 4 star reviews were fair. Mostly complaints about the same thing even the biggest fan has complained about with this app. Mainly lack of things to do. Characters basically doing the same thing. Unlocking all characters leaves nothing else to do. I expect MS to address this in updates to come but for now, for a high score fanatic app like this one, this is one of the best ones to get.

  111. I agree with you to but since I had this app since the first chapter I am kinda disappointed with the low reviews. I also think that they're is nothing left to do after you get all the chars. I think the lowest rating this app should be is 4.5. Keep up the good work MS. :)

  113. I think that Minigore is only free for two days to promote it just a bit more before releasing ep 4. I hope that it gets into the top ten free apps, then into the top ten paid, that would increase its popularity and in turn increase sales, increasing popularity etc.

  115. The rating has gone down to 4 stars. I hope u make it $3 after though because that's how much the app shud be worth If u think about all the work put into it.
